Side lamps/ lights are very useful for reading before sleeping and for easy access to light in the middle of the night. It also helps that they look wonderful in the overall bedroom scheme. So look out for interesting and unique lights around the headboard. You will be spoilt for choice when it comes to selecting one, so select carefully so that it serves the purpose of both design and function.

Build a bookshelf around the headboard

If you are a book lover, build a bookshelf around the headboard or just have the bookshelf as an extension of the headboard itself. Beautifully arranged books in perfect shelves can add such character to the bedroom. While it makes the reading material easy to access, it also acts as a nice spot to read in leisure right there. For the bookworms, there's always a space crunch to store their precious book collection and a huge bookshelf like this one that covers the entire wall can be such a great addition to the decor.

Stack up giant pillows

When thinking of super comfortable cozy and luxurious beds to sleep on, images of giant pillows that you can sink in, conjure up. Create your dream sleep area by adding huge pillows along with regular ones so you can lay back, relax and unwind. Kids always love pillows to jump on so if you are co-sleeping, they would certainly appreciate this latest addition. However be careful not to overstock when there are babies around as there can always be risk of soffocation.
